I just discovered that Walgreen's has Care Medial ID Bracelets
I ordered one of these bracelets, I love it it is very light weight it is waterproof and best of all it has all my medical information stored in the bracelet. The way it works is that you get the bracelet which ranges from 14.99 to 19.99 plus shipping. You have to go to the Walgreen's website which is www.walgreens.com You then put in the search bar on their website Care Medial ID Bracelet. .
When you get the bracelet you unhook it it is made out of rubber with a clasp to it
It has a metal end to it when you unhook it this goes into your computer
You will be directed to their sight on how to download your medical information. You then will put all your medical information in a file that will be stored in the bracelet for when a medial staff can easy access it for when you can not let them know that you are a Celiac patient and can not have gluten.
I am a Celiac patient plus a type 1 Diabetic
I also have high blood pressure. You put all your information in that they ask such as your doctor's name your Pharmacy name your medial information contact person and your insurance information. plus your blood type.
I think this bracelet is important for Celiacs in case that for some reason you are unconscious and come in an ER you have the information letting the medical staff know that you have Celiac disease and can not have Gluten from the get go.
The medial staff can call your doctor right away and get all the extra information that they may need plus be able to notify your family members right away. .
The information that you store in the bracelet is not the easiest to set up you kind of have to figure things out for yourself but once you get the hang of it it is not that bad . It is worth the minor inconvenience with putting the information in for you to have all your medical files in one spot .to let others know about your medial needs for when you can not let others know about them yourself.
